Free silage safety coloring book available for your next staff meeting

Published on 08 June 2018

Don’t let a silage accident ruin this summer. Teach everyone on the farm about silage safety with free, new silage safety coloring books from Sealpro Silage Barrier Films and Connor Agriscience, now in both English and Spanish versions.

Living near and working around silage can be dangerous. An avalanche, fall from height, unsafe sampling, silo gas – all are possible. Understanding why and how to be safe is important. With school being out, more children will be on the farm and potentially working with silage.

Long days and summer’s extra work stress can make anyone complacent. Reminding ourselves and those around us of feed storage danger and what we can do to stay safe can help.

“Connor Agriscience has over 10 years of leadership in silage education and has helped people make and manage their feed to save money. We know that efficient silage is safe silage. But even the best-made feeds must be respected to avoid potential disaster,” says Connie Kuber, vice president of Connor Agriscience. “Our new coloring book is a fast, easy and engaging way to teach everyone – not just children – how to work and live more safely around silage.”

The books make great resources for 4-H, FFA, YFR and collegiate groups, as well as twilight meetings and safety days. A free lesson plan comes with every order. Also perfect for employee tailgates. Free copies are available at the Connor Agriscience website – use the contact form to order.  end mark
